While he could have played his last match of the season with OM on Saturday evening, in Lille, Dimitri Payet was finally dismissed by Igor Tudor. A decision that does not surprise Laure Boulleau.
What if we never saw Dimitri Payet again in the colors of OM? Suspended for the last two days of the championship, the 36-year-old attacking midfielder, who could put an end to his career at the end of the current exercise, according to certain rumours, had the opportunity to play his last match of the season on the lawn of Losc (2-1 defeat of the Marseillais), Saturday evening, as part of the 36th day of Ligue 1.
Yes but now, the tricolor international dragged his feet during the last training session of the Olympians before flying to Lille, after learning that he would not start for this meeting against the Mastiffs. The former Nantes player was thus dismissed from the group by Igor Tudor, in the same way as the Portuguese Nuno Tavares. A judged decision “a little harsh” by Laure Boulleau, who is however not surprised.
“Payet often scuttles himself”
“It’s a bit harsh. It’s Tudor, I’m not surprised, we’re not going to change the character. He remains faithful to his ideas, to his discipline. I’m sad for Dimitri Payet because in addition he was in good shape, he has shown lately that his technical qualities would have been good for OM, including against Lille where it lacked creativity.”thus explained the former side of PSG on Canal +.
And Laure Boulleau to slip a tackle on the Reunionese: “I find that Dimitri Payet often scuttles himself, if I may say so. He didn’t need to have that attitude. He knows he’s going to be suspended, he knows he’s going to play maybe his last game, so show your desire to play! » While waiting to find out whether or not Dimitri Payet will hang up his crampons this summer, the latter will not play again this season, he who remains linked to the Marseille club until June 2024.
